Cinnamon Circles Preparation In a large mixing bowl with electric mixer set at high speed, beat butter until smooth; gradually add sugar; beat until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla. In a medium bowl combine flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt. Add to butter mixture, beating until just combined; cover bowl. Chill dough until firm but not hard, about 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Shape dough into 3/4 inch balls using 1 tablespoon dough for each. Place on ungreased cookie sheets 2 1/2 inches apart. Using the bottom of a floured glass, press each ball into a 2 inch circle. Bake until just golden around the edge, about 6 minutes. Do not over bake. Remove from baking sheets to a wire rack; cool completely. In a small saucepan over very low heat melt chocolate morsels, stirring constantly. Frost half of each cookie using a small spatula. Place on a rack to set. Refrigerate in a tightly covered container.
